Urgent Support Needed for the Longest Walk II Northern Route

The bus for the Northern Route has broken down in Lawrence, KS. In order to fix the Rockwell differential, we need to raise $4,000! If 400 people donate $10 each, the walkers can meet their goal.

Thank you for your continued support!


More info on the Longest Walk 2:

The Longest Walk 2 is a five-month long trans-continental journey on foot from San Francisco, CA to Washington, D.C. to bringing attention to issues of environmental injustice, protection of sacred sites, cultural survival, youth empowerment, and eroding Native American rights.

More info:

The purpose of the Northern route is to continue and carry the message from the Longest Walk of 1978: "The Longest Walk is an Indian spiritual walk, a historical walk; and it is a walk for educational awareness to the American and the world communities about the concerns of American Indian people. This route will carry the message of Renewing the Spirit by Walking in the Footsteps of our Ancestors. This walk is to commemorate the Longest Walk in 1978-those who walked then and those who walk now. We are walking to bring awareness of the struggle to protect sacred sites."
